The tabletop I'm sharing this week is the hall tree in our foyer. I change the decor for each holiday and seasons. For Valentine's Day this year I added the silk florals at the top of the mirror. The two framed prints my husband brought back from Italy a few years ago.
First I placed a vintage-look Valentine on top of Jane Austen's Persuasion book. A red mercury glass vase filled with red florals and a red mercury glass voltive sit beside the gold candlestick.
Next I changed to the tiny cherub on the book, can't decide which I like best, the cherub, or the Valentine.
Inspiration for this tabletop started with this large heart ornament:
I found this lovely ornament before Christmas 2008, at T.J. Maxx for only $7.99! Since it looks like a heart, I knew I would use it for Valentine decor.
Below: the mirror reflection makes it look like two candles, but there's only one.
I like it so much I would like to keep it here year around, but guess I won't!
P.S. - We are giving praise and thanksgiving to the Lord! My husband, Joe, received a good report from his heart catheterization Friday at Mayo Clinic (Jacksonville, FL) He didn't need to have stints, the two doctors agreed his problem can be "fixed" with taking meds! We are so thankful for all the prayers and support we've had from friends and family, and all of you blogger friends who also prayed for us! We believe this result is from the prayers! A few weeks ago our pastor anointed Joe with oil and prayed for him, as well.
